Operation Mincemeat is, as best I can tell, a bit like if you combined Weekend at Bernie’s with World War II. It’s the true story of a British attempt to disguise their plans to free Sicily by taking a dead homeless man, dressing him as an officer of some ilk, and “hiding” intelligence on his person. It seems like they’re preeeetty sure it helped? And now it’s a movie starring Colin Firth, which is pretty much a happy ending to every story.
